Highlights from the RoughRiders’ 5-4 win over Midland on Tuesday afternoon. The contest started at 11 a.m., but the ‘Riders awoke from a 3-0 deficit and scored five unanswered. Click here to read the full game recap.

Midland once again made the game interesting in the ninth inning. The RockHounds kept the game alive when Anthony Aliotti reached on an error to put men on first and second with two outs. Josh Whitaker, who had homered twice already in the series, put a charge in a ball to deep right field, but Drew Robinson made the grab at the fence to shut down the Hounds.

Star of the Game: RHP Phil Klein – The 6-foot-7 reliever from Ohio tossed two scoreless innings against the RockHounds in a one-run game to earn his second save of the season. The ‘Riders improved to 10-1 in one-run games in 2014, tops in the Texas League.



Enjoy the highlights and thanks for tuning in.
